  • Lengers column: Are you fasting during Lent?

    In recent years, there has been a trend among Christians to make prayer and good works the focus of Lenten observances rather than fasting or self-denial. In other words, rather than give up such things as sweets, coffee, meat or condiments and seasonings, there is greater movement toward resolutions to pray more, visit a shut-in, devote more time to spiritual readings, or even “fast” from vices such as unkindness.
